2 vols, 12mo (190 × 118 and 196 × 120 mm), pp. [4], viii, [8], 308; xvii, [11], 211, [1]; engraved frontispieces, vol. 2 with engraved illustration to final leaf; both volumes uncut in boards (the first rebacked and with the sides re-covered to match vol. 1); armorial bookplate ‘Shelburne’ of the Marquis of Lansdowne in vol. 2; both slightly rubbed, one spine with minor loss, preserved in a modern cloth folding case (bookplates of John L.

First editions of both volumes of Graves’s elegant collection, taking for its title the goddess of mirth, one of the Three Graces (or Charites). A second and third edition of both volumes appeared in 1783.

The two volumes here are uncut, and nicely demonstrate the different page sizes of the two volumes as issued. Jackson, p. 45 and 78.
